After eighteen years in the NYPD, Denny Malone is the star of its elite force. He has an outstanding record and seems to have risen above the city’s ever-present corruption. In fact, he’s far from clean. He and his partners made off with millions in drugs and cash after a recent bust—and federal investigators are suspicious. Malone can’t confess without bringing down half the force, and now isn’t the time to do that. A rash of racial incidents is threatening to explode, and every cop is crucial to keeping the situation under control. A story of good men gone not completely bad, of ethics complicated by real-life situations, Winslow’s latest thriller is a masterpiece of psychological suspense in the vein of his earlier The Cartel, The Power of the Dog, and Savages.
